on president obama to stop a 100 city campaign style tour, and angela mcglowan is a fox news political analyst, mark hanna, an adjunct professor at media of new schools and former aide, mark and angela, thank you for joining us, as you both know, senator tom coburn of oklahoma sent a letter to the white house, in it, if washington is truly cutting spending on missions many consider vital, how can we at the same time promise and promote more financial adistance, much less afford this mammoth, 100 city cross country tour, wrote coburn, and while he talked about that, while it's well intentioned, he's urging the president to cancel this tour. mark, what do you think about that? >> kelly, i think that senator coburn lives up to his representlation and his nickname as dr. no in the senate. if there's any senator taking issue with the president going city to city and town to town and informing americans and local governments about the programs that are available to them through their taxpayer dollars, it would be him. and i don't think there's anything really controversial about members of the feder
to come. that's up from 48% just a year ago. let's bring in our political panel, angela mcglowan and a former spokesperson for vermont gosh howard dean who is also a presidential candidate. ladies, thanks for joining us, look, there's a lot of pessimism right now as we're seeing right now, a degree of uncertainty amongst the american people and why do you think that is when we're seeing that the economy shall at least our unemployment rate dropped to below 8%. >> americans, americans are suffering, kelly. i mean, people today, most don't believe in the american dream anymore, most don't believe they can obtain a house or even keep their house, most are living from paycheck to paycheck, if they have a job and more americans are living on government assistance. now, is that the fault of the obama administration? is it the fault of congress? or is it the fault of the american people? we elected these people in office, and we reejected obama and his policy has failed us, kelly. we don't know what the middle class is today because the middle class continues to shrink. >> christy
are maria theresa cumar and angela wry. angela how important is it for the president president to go outside the beltway to create change inside washington. >> public pressure because the president has got to continue to emphasize that we, the people, are the united states of america, not the divided states of america, right? at some point, we have to heed the public pressure. we have to heed the public out cry for what is needed to really move this country forward. >> you know, maria theresa, they view as cut from the same cloth. the administrative officials calls the same speeches two acts of the same play. does that meenl that we'll see the same focus we the people in the state of the union tomorrow night? >> i think what we saw in inauguration is him moving toward a progressive agenda. the fact that it's gone to the social media waves and people are really galvanizing behind it, you're going to see the exact same thingd tomorrow. whether she talks about the economy. it's a perfect time to talk about se kwesz trags and really talk about who are the people that are blocking the potential c
me now is angela wry and dana millbank. dana, a big time excuse from rush. what does it say about the state of the gop? >> well, i don't know. i think that perhaps rush limbaugh and rand paul and others should be studying gold fish to learn how to keep their mouths shut. because they seem to dig themselves in deeper and deeper here. there's been a lot of blaming that's going on every now and then. you think they sort of come to grips with the election defeat. and, no, they're going to go on saying well, it's about the technology. well, it's because the voters were ignore aant. well, it's because the democrats tricked them. well, there is something about the way we reached out to them, the way the message was. they're just not grasping that. the electorate is fundamentally changed to an electorate that is supporting gay marriage, to an electorate that is increasingly latino, that an electorate that is significantly compromised of women. so it's a matter of not understanding where the electorate has gone and pointing fingers at everything else. >> angela, i always say a fish wouldn'
on for this president. joining me now is political strategist angela rye. thank you both for being with us. >> thank you, reverend al. >> jarret, let me go to you first. tax fairness is a big part of what the president wants to get done. take a look at this. there are many middle class households that are actually paying a higher tax rate than households that make over a million dollars a year because they don't get most of their money from investments. will the president's policies change this problem? >> they will and they already are, to some extent. but there's more to be done there, just like the president just said. in the deal that ended the fiscal cliff, the tax rate at least for folks at the very top of the income scale, above $450,000, on capital gains and dividends, capital gains is what you get when you sell an appreciated stock. its value goes up. those are called capital gains. 20% is already below the tax rate that folks at the top of the scale pay on their earnings. so the president is saying there's a lot more room there to close out some of those loopholes and deductions. you mentioned
is angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies. ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it's only the middle of february 2013 and we have a slurry of individuals, bobby jindal, marco rubio, rand paul, paul ryan, but as far as jindal goes, he doesn't seem -- he seems to be having a hard time convincing voters in his own state. he only gets something like 37% of people in louisiana who want to support him. what do you think his prospects are to begin with? >> first and foremost, i think it's a really bad idea to kind of poll or test policies on your state not paying attention to what really matters to the folks and the residents of louisiana. so i think he really has to get a better handle on what his state cares about right now. it's not school vouchers. it's not this new tax proposal he has. it's things that immediately matter like what's happening with the economy. i have no idea what bobby jindal is doing but he's a little off base here. >> that's a fair condemnation. jonathan,
latino and angela rye is director of impact and a political strategist. welcome to both of you. maria, if i can start with you, what do you think the president is hoping to achieve by hosting such a range of organizations and companies to discuss this issue? >> martin, what the president recognizes is comprehensive immigration reform will take all efforts, all hands on deck. it's going to be grassroots, labor, business, and the only way he can do that is make sure everybody is on board and very clear on what the request is at hand. but more importantly, the fact that he was able to get in one day not only labor but he was also able to get business around the same table during these discussions demonstrates business recognizes they need to move fast on immigration because his window of time is short to pass this legislation. >> angela, today speaker john boehner and leader eric cantor were both asked if they plan to vote for senator marco rubio's broad plan supported by senate democrats. see if you can find a straight answer from either man. listen to this. >> i want to applaud senator
their ears and listen to the american people. joining me now, joan walsh and angela rye. how can republicans be so disconnect frd the will of the american people? >> i think when folks really focus on winning elections and not representing people, you lose sight of what's most important. public service is just that. >> we've seen it with interracial marriage. we've seen it throughout time. and sometimes you have to help folks to see what really matters and how to move them ahead on issues that they may be uncomfortable with. the american public has shifted. the party is still the same, but they're focused on winning elections. >> angela's point, some of them were contentious, some of them were the majority, but slightly. but when you look at minimum wage, joan, 71% of americans want to see minimum wage increase. 71%. how can the gop oppose 71% of the country. these polls are national, but increasing what you have is really like two nations. you have these red states and these red districts and you have house gerrymandering so that all of these -- many of these republicans think about is thei
me now is richard wolffe and angela. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> it's a hard sell but republicans seem to crumble on a bunch of these issues. what's going on? >> they are picking fights they cannot win. they are picking fights about defense secretary who is always going to have enough votes. yes, they mess around with him. he was always going to get confirmed. it's a bit like the sequester. they have to cave. the pressure is too intense watching this unfold. medicaid dollars, really, are you going to have governors with the supreme court saying you have a choice. governors are going to turn down dollars that make them more popular. they are not picking smart fights here. that leads to a bigger question. will they ever break out of what bobby jindal call the stupid party? that's the thing they are facing right now. >> angela, you work the hill. you know it better than most people in this town. you were there in 2010 when the tea party movement was at its height and had a lot of strength. salon says that not only do the republicans seem to be cav
by janay's mother angela blakely. miss blakely, first i want to say how sorry i am for your loss. >> thank you. >> and i know that you're just going through the viewing. the funeral is a couple days off. but you wanted to come and lend your voice even in your pain to putting attention on this issue of gun violence that has robbed your daughter. tell us the type of person janay was. >> janay was -- pardon me. >> take your time. we understand. >> janay was a beautiful person. she was fun loving. she was like the life of the party to be around. she always loved to dance. always loved to make people smile. even in my times of me being a little mad or frustrated with janay, she would always do something to make me laugh or smile all the time. because that was my buddy. that was may baby. she couldn't stand for me to be mad with her or anything. my daughter was a wonderful person. she just so happened to, you know, been at the wrong place at the wrong time or befriend the wrong person. >> now, she was not a troubled child. this was not someone that was hanged in the streets there. one of the thi
that are capable of working are actually out there looking. that is down 2% from 2009. let's bring in angela and jehmu greene and former president of the women's media center. nice to see you. okay, let me ask you first, angela, it sounds like more finger pointing when the president says that washington needs to get out of the way. is he talking about congress? >> he is talking about himself and congress and get out of the way and let the private sector. the only way i can reduce poverty and increase prosperity is by free markets and capitalism and not bigger government. what we have seen with the obama administration has been more bureaucracy and bigger government and more regulation and more spending and less prosperity. you can see it in the job numbers. >> jamie: smud should we read anything into the fact that the president is focused on gun control and immigration, given the fact we're still getting these numbers and so many people are out of work? >> i'm confident that the president can do two things at the same time. when you talk about letting the private sector do its thing, that is
, contrived crises. >> angela, when you're doing the state of the union and you know you worked the hill, you're not only talking to the people there, you're talking to millions of americans. don't americans want to hear about jobs? >> i think you're absolutely right, rev. they want to hear the president lay out a blueprint. the state of the union is an opportunity for president obama to talk about not only his legacy goals, but what direction america needs to take. when we look at the last congress and the fact that it was the least productive congress in american history, a lot of people say look, we've got jobs, we've got immigration reform, we've got gun control and we need you all to get on the same page with the rest of the country. >> e.j., at the democratic retreat, former president bill clinton, he said the politics americans want are in line with this president's agenda. watch this. >> i think the last election was an election where america chose an inclusive. now that you've won this race in large measure on what the american people did not want, we had to create a future that they
meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. they realize there's nothing they can do to control him. and they are becoming the face of the party. >> but angela, some members of his own party may begin to know it, but marco rubio is praising him as a superstar. look at ted cruz's resume. he believes sharia law is replacing american law. he believes medicaid is unconstitutional. he proposed state nullification of the affordable care act. he even thinks there's a
strategist angela ragg. is the president overreacting? let's just say rand paul is spot-on. john nichols, is the president overreacting? >> he absolutely is not overreacting. the sequester is austerity. it is -- it's not slowing the rate of growth. our population is growing. our needs are growing. if you slow down the amount of spending you've got at a time when you have growth and population, you are making severe cuts. and the sequester is really the first installment on an austerity agenda that poses huge threats according to government and private sector analyses to our abolishmeemployment rate an potential for growth. the president is not lying nor is he being historionic or overboard. >> i don't know what the president strategy is, but it looks to me like there is not one. they're saying different things and reacting on different points and none of them make sense. when you talk about sequestration or across the board cuts, we're talking about things that impact the lives of real people. they want to see small government. well, small government doesn't work when you have a large po
'll be talking to michael tomasky, from the daily beast. and angela kelly from the center for american progress, she is one of the leaders on shaping legislation reform on capitol hill. she'll let us know what we can expect from the senate and the white house. and i think it's what nine days now from sequester time. get ready. but first. ♪ >> the late king of pop, michael jackson's son started a new job last night. prince michael now 16 years old appeared on entertainment tonight where he is a special correspondent. he says he wants to become a well-rounded producer director screen writer and actor. just 16. >> this will end well. >> bill: isn't there some rule about child labor in hollywood? >> 16 you can work. >> it's just -- come on already. >> bill: go to college -- >> exactly. >> bill: i'm sure he got his job on merit as a reporter. and we know how these things work out when you take kids and shove them in front of the camera at young aims. >> another former obama advisor has taken a job as news consult important. david axelrod. >> bill: it's very clear if you want the
and an opinion writer for the "washington post" and angela reid, principle of impact strategies and msnbc contributor susan dellpurseo. >> you come in on president a days. let's dive in and get to work talking about this leaked proposal that came out. angela, i want to start with you. we have the timeline here and if we look at it, the president was scheduled to go to las vegas on january 29th and give his first policy speech of the second administration but we see that on the 28th the bipartisan group of senators, they came out with their plan trying to trump the president to seem ahead of him. is this a way in the chess match with the leaked reform bill getting out there a way for the president to get the ball back. >> i think if we stay a step back and think about what was in the leaked draft proposal, it is not that being showing. anyone listening to the state of the union address or anything else this administration has said about immigration, it is not a rouge surprise. we should be real about where we are and when you look at the senators bart of the bipartisan coalition, you think
bring in political strategist and co-founder of impact d.c. angela rye, and we're also joined by republican strategist david winston. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with the optics of this, angela. how important was it for the president to name another woman? >> i think extremely important, chris. it's very important that this cabinet in particular reflects the diversity of america. when you look at what the mission is of the department of interior, the fact that native peoples are a portion of their mission, it's important not only a woman, but a woman from washington state is in this role. >> she is a washington woman. the controversies -- the biggest controversy to deal with, david, is land management related to oil and gas rights. i mean, generally, we're going to make a broad statement here, republicans tend to be oil industry promotes, environmental activists tend to be democrats. is this someone who both sides might feel understands their position? >> i think that opportunity certainly is there, but obviously it's going to depend in terms of what he initi
's no doubt, angela, that the numbers of gun owners who feel the way that wayne lapierre feels. >> the president has their polls. wayne lapierre does not. i remember in elementary school i had to take a current event class and i'm wondering if he's not paying attention to the news. we have newtown with 20 kids gone. and you have this new killer on the rampage in los angeles. at some point the gun laws can no longer control us. we have to control them. >> well, i wonder, too, david if they are tone deaf. universal background checks, which do seem, if anything, have the broadest support. take a listen. >> at first glance, there's nothing universal about it at all. but think about it, criminals won't be part of that universe. think about it. they will steal their guns. >> the polls are not on the nra side. 52% of americans support stricter gun control laws. overwhelming support for the universal background checks. 92%. 56% support a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. is the nra tone deaf? >> well, i think clearly there's a reaction to newtown that is not expected,
